Synchronized Swimming

What will you learn? So many things! We focus on figures, breath control, flexibility, and of course
routines! We have options for all levels and encourage you to come out and try it! All sessions are run by seasoned coaches!

What are the goals? Coaches strive to develop confident athletes versed in figures and routines, technical synchro details and performance skills.  Synchro is an excellent way for young swimmers to become comfortable in the water and learn to love swimming! If you don’t know what level your child should attend, please register for beginner and the coach will complete an assessment at the first class.

To be eligible for synchronized swimming kids must be at least 7 years old and able to swim 50 metres unassisted.  Swimmers must be comfortable in the deep end.  Synchro is usually coached from the deck (so coaches can see what the swimmers are doing).
